Brochure Explains N e w USCG Survival Suit Regulations

Survival International, Inc. has produced a new brochure that fully explains current U.S.

Coast Guard regulations concerning use of survival suits.

Unlike some federal regulations published in the "Federal Register," this booklet is written in laymen terms—easy-to-understand language— and fully explains previous regulations and new laws inacted in December 1985 concerning who must carry survival suits aboard their vessels and why.

For example: Did you know the latest regulations require that your vessel carry two survival suits aboard for most crew members? Did you know that the latitude has been changed from 35 degrees to 32 degrees, meaning that if your vessel operates in these waters it must have survival suits on board.

Do you know if your vessels are required to carry such safety equipment? What type of survival suits are allowed under the law? Can you replace PFDs with survival suits?

These and many more questions are answered in this highly informative booklet. For your free copy, Circle 53 on Reader Service Card
